Columbo has to solve a crime at the embassy of a middle-east nation. The culture there is different, and the main suspects have diplomatic immunity. Also, to complicate matters, there is a student demonstration outside the gates, and the king is visiting the embassy. However, Columbo decides to investigate the matter in his own persistent way.

Did You Know?
Rachman Habib escapes from the embassy and crashes the black gate with the car. Columbo arrives at the crime scene shortly after the murder happened and interviews the guard. You can see some workmen fixing the gate which now is painted with dark red or brown primer. Even if it was possible to paint the gate in such a short time the primer still would be wet making it impossible for the workmen to handle it. See more

The fact is he doesn't look like much of a murderer. You know, after fifteen years in this business, I can still look at a person sometimes and say to myself, "He can't be the murderer."
And are you often right?
Oh, 20% or so, if that. Not too many times.
